Invoking Her Name

He couldn’t invoke her name

Because he feared her

Feared that she kept moving

Healing within herself

Like an injured butterfly

Scared to feel the wind

Refusing him power over her

She refused him

It awakened her

Her name was sacred

She remembered her roots

It burnt his lips

He never tamed her fire

Hurting him deeply

He never tamed her

Hurting him deeply

He couldn’t shake her off

He died in her

Over and over

The light of his spirit

Her monster in the dark

Never knowing how to say her name
